Active Environments is a project which reveals one small piece of a vast puzzle which is slowly, but persistently becoming our reality. The project is based on the idea the Internet of Things. It is a system that supports and enables people to connect their environments to the Internet with a purpose of monitoring their health. In this way, helping people to take greater control over the state of the environment they live in or care about. This is achieved through the access to their real-time data send by a networked environment connected through a Pachube platform. The system uses social network mechanisms to connect people and create communities around a mutual interest—an environment they care about. In this way, facilitating civic responsibility and local cooperation, supporting people to actively use the technology at their hands. It would also functions as a platform for the comparison of different environments' health, based on the data they send.
Open Energy Fran Castillo ( Kitchen Budapest , Goteo) 2011 app, industry, energy saving, environment, sustainability, prototype, augmented reality, monitoring, power consumtion, open hardware, visualization, smart grid, project, energy, creative commons
Open Energy aims to develop a platform to explore new systems of visualization energy use and to optimize it accordingly, both in domestic and industrial environments. The system is built along two dimensions: first one, Energy Monitoring Device, which investigates open hardware devices in which monitoring power consumption, and a second dimension, Open Energy Visualization (Data Visualization / Augmented Reality App), which explores new ways of real-time visualization power consumption in domestic environments. These systems will allow us to amplify our knowledge about the dynamic behavior of energy anywhere. Open Energy is a prototype of energy infrastructure completely Open Source.
Open Energy Monitor Trystan Lea et al. 2009 open-source, energy, monitoring, industry, heat, sustainability, environment, energy consumption, visualization, data, arduino, diy, solar energy
Our technical vision is to create a fully open-source energy monitoring and control system that is suitable for domestic and industrial application. The current system contains the following modules: emonTx, emonBase, emonGLCD, emoncms and can be configured for the following applications: Home energy monitor PV system monitoring Heatpump monitoring Solar hot water monitoring Hot water tank monitoring Water consumption monitoring
Point Cloud James Leng 2012 interactive, monitoring, meteorology, prediction, controll, interpret data, visualitzation, dynamic data, responsive environment, weather data, visualization, arduino
Created by James Leng, Point Cloud is an attempt to re-imagine our daily interaction with weather data. Even with the modern scientific and technological developments related to weather and when we can deploy sophisticated monitoring devices to document and observe weather, our analysis and understanding of meteorology is still largely approximate. Weather continues to surprise us and elude our best attempts to predict, control, and harness the various elements. Point Cloud builds on this premise, exploring new ways to interpret and understand weather data.
StemCloud Electro+Bio intelligence Several Authors (AltN Research + Ecologic Studio) 2008 responsive environment, environment, architecture, CO2, interaction, LED, sensors
For the Sevilla Biennale I worked with Ecologic Studio to implement a layer of electronic intelligence and monitoring to augment their systems of biological response for StemCloud. The basic variables in the system were Water + Nutrients + CO2. The CO2 was to be provided by the visitors by blowing into the tubes. The goal for the monitoring system was to track the amount of interaction (and thus CO2) units were receiving, save this to a database to compare to the other variables over time, and reflect this through the intensity of the LEDs such that units which had received less CO2 would glow brighter to attract attention.
